    I worked at Qualcomm full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    An engineering company that seems to be run by engineers. Innovation is valued and rewarded.

    Cons

    You can get pigeonholed into a job description. It's not easy to move between positions if you feel you'd have more to offer elsewhere. Work life balance has leaned more toward work in the last few years.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Qualcomm.

    Interview

    At first a HR contacted me to learn some background about me. Then she scheduled me 1 phone interview, followed by an onsite interview. Onsite interview was composed of 4 technical interviews and 1 lunch interview. Interviewers are very nice, they ask some questions about C coding and DSP.
